What do you see when you look in the mirror? Maybe you notice a few more wrinkles you hadn’t seen before. Or some areas of your face appear hollow or sagging. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and its natural healthy glow. You want to look on the outside as young as you feel on the inside, but you don’t feel surgery is right for you. We have an option for you! Let’s take a look at combing Botox and dermal fillers.

Combining Botox and dermal fillers is beneficial because they treat different types of wrinkles and you can address multiple issues at once. Botox® relaxes dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated facial movements like squinting and frowning; dermal fillers smooth out static wrinkles, which are visible even when the face is at rest. Dermal fillers restore lost volume and help to sculpt youthful looking contours and definition.

Using Botox® and dermal fillers together can also prolong the results of treatment. The hyaluronic acid in many fillers tends to break down faster in areas of the face that are very animated and active (such as around the mouth). It can be helpful to first use Botox® to relax muscle movement, so the hyaluronic acid is then less likely to break down as quickly.
